If we ask ourselves whether life or love is first, we can claim each to be first. But which do you think really comes first? It is love that comes first. Relating this to the core of the universe, in order for something to have value, there must be an original flow of love. (143-277, 1986.3.20)

Who is supposed to carry out the conversion of the lineage? It cannot be performed by just anyone. You must know that in order to become the one who can perform it, I walked the tearful path of the cross. Because I set such a standard, you are able to become a part of the tradition of the Blessing without having to do anything for it. It took thousands of years of hard work on God’s part and my substantial life course, which was filled with hardships and suffering, to establish the victorious realm of the conversion of lineage. You are now standing on the foundation thus laid down. To receive the Blessing is to completely cut off the evil lineage and to engraft a new lineage. By engrafting, the lineage is completely changed. (35-178, 1970.10.13)

A Life with True Parents

Section 8. Bequeathing and Inheriting True Parents’ Heart

8.2. Sons and daughters inherit from their parents

    If there is a gift God can give to the human world, what would the best gift be? It must be for all of you to become the ancestors of humankind and true mothers and fathers. There is nothing higher. Even being a cabinet minister or the president cannot match it. This is the greatest gift God can give to people. When there are True Parents, there will automatically be true children, true families, true tribes, true nations, and a true world. Then, what is the most important title? It is the name and title of True Parents.
    What was the Fall? The Fall was that people did as they pleased. Therefore, we must tear down that which was not done centering on God and True Parents. Men should become incarnations of Father and women incarnations of Mother. Wherever God enters you, whether through your eyes or anywhere else, you should welcome Him. You cannot say, “Oh no, you cannot come in.” Do you want walls to remain in place? God’s love comes through you. You need to study all this. You must not be negligent. You should all do this. When you inherit the tradition, True Parents will come to you. True Parents will come to you as God’s messenger and give you the inheritance. (118-271, 1982.6.13)

    Since True Parents had not appeared until now, neither could true children. So far, since no true person had existed on earth, True Parents had not appeared. So the Unification Church is saying, “Let us acknowledge True Parents, discover and serve them.” We are saying we should be sons and daughters of True Parents.

    What do we do when we become their sons and daughters? We inherit what they have. The True Parents’ rights of inheritance include heaven and earth, and even God. We too should inherit even God. If there were no owner of heaven and earth, heaven and earth would have no value. We have to be people who can fully acknowledge the value of heaven and earth, and claim their value for eternity. We also need to meet the one who can officially recognize that. That being is God. Thus, we should gain True Parents’ rights of inheritance. Then, what are True Parents’ rights of inheritance? They include inheriting not only heaven and earth, but also God. (24-322, 1969.9.14)
    The path we are walking has not ended. You will receive the Blessing through the gratitude you show before Heaven. You should be grateful individually and you should also never forget the value of having received the Blessing representing your tribe, your clan, such as the Kim or the Pak clan, and, moreover representing the thirty million people of Korea and all the people of the world.
    Furthermore, you should know that you have inherited the responsibility that True Parents are to carry out on earth. Why do the Blessed Families have to inherit this? If the Blessed Families are going through the course to restore a people, True Parents should be going through a course to restore the world. In other words, they should be going one step ahead. Yet without establishing the victorious standard of having restored a people, True Parents cannot walk the course of worldwide restoration. That is why you must inherit the responsibility to restore a people to ensure that True Parents can walk the worldwide course. Until your death and until the sorrow of this people is removed, you must shoulder the responsibility to restore a people. (13-293, 1964.4.12)

Section 9. What You Need to Take Heed of

    Without entering the realm of heart, we will not be restored. Therefore, the person who is responsible for restoration must proceed while holding onto True Parents. Even Jesus has no way without going through True Parents. With True Parents as the central axis you should form a perfectly horizontal line centering on True Parents’ love. You cannot have any complaints. You cannot complain. If you complain, you will become warped and deformed. (136-67, 1985.12.20)

    You say this and that about True Parents, but if you think of True Parents as if they were just some rich or famous parents in your village, you are gravely mistaken. For the world to be unified, it must receive True Parents. Humankind cannot find the way to unite the world. True Parents are the visible fruit of our hope throughout history and the visible fruit of our heart’s desire. They are the visible fruit of the victory that has indemnified everything. You should know this. True Parents cannot be exchanged for anything. (55-155, 1972.5.7)
